Cashew Pumpkin Dip, Vegan and Gluten-Free

The best recipe for Cashew Pumpkin Dip
cashew pumpkin dip gluten free vegan recipe

Pass on the pile of candy and dive into a bowl of Cashew Pumpkin Dip this Halloween!  It’s secretly healthy and tastes just like pumpkin cheesecake!  Dip into it with apple slices, pretzels or spread onto graham crackers for a delightful snack…or just eat it by the spoonful like I did 🙂

This recipe takes only a few minutes to make.  Simply blend creamy cashew butter, pumpkin, maple syrup and spices until fluffy.  Cashew butter is a mild tasting nut butter that works well in recipes.  It’s also super buttery, which makes for a decant dessert!  Cashews are a great source of zinc, biotin, iron, potassium and magnesium.  They also provide protein and monounsaturated fat, making this a snack that will keep your glucose levels in check and in turn preventing sugar cravings.  Sugar cravings and Halloween are a bad combo!
